I didn’t bother watching the US Open, because our hero, Rory McIlroy was so dominating this weekend, so destroying the entire field that there was absolutely no suspense.
Good for him. We at BSP think McIlroy is the greatest. Why? Because he, at 22 did at the Masters what everyone who has ever played golf has done. He melted down; suffered a warp core breach. He answered the bell and all the idiotic questions from the sports media. McIlroy made people forget about that self-immolation and now has his first major win. He also has us thinking about what would things look like if he HAD won the Masters. Talk about him being the next great thing coming along would have inevitably arisen.
It still might. Tiger appears close to done. Mikkelson appears old. The opening is there.
